Council Recognizes Patient Safety Awareness Week

Please join the Council in recognizing Patient Safety Awareness Week from March 11-17. Creating an environment of safety in health care settings is crucial to providing comprehensive care and positive health outcomes. For people experiencing homelessness, feeling safe is especially complex due to higher rates of previous experience with violence and trauma, mental health disorders, and other challenges.

Learn more about patient safety and ways to increase awareness at the Institute for Healthcare Improvement,¬†and¬†visit our Consumer Participation Outreach Survey to better understand consumers’ experiences and attitudes about safety at HCH programs, as well as how organizations can cultivate a secure environment that meets the needs of people without homes.
